I have started a collection of this pottery for my Mom as she loves blue, and I travel to Mexico frequently. I have never seen a plate like this before, so I purchased it for her,, first piece that I did not "travel all the way to Mexico for!" It matches all of the other beautiful serving dishes she has, and I know she will be thrilled with it for Christmas. Would buy more similiar to this,, it is a beautiful piece!!...

Story Behind the Art:
Mexico's Alonso Luis says, 'I come from Puebla and create traditional majolica ceramics in the Talavera style. Our work is carried out the way it's been done here for hundreds of years. I am concerned about the environment, its conservation and its rescue. This is reflected in our ceramics, as everything we make is lead free.' Talavera was brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain, already influenced by Moorish designs. True Talavera requires a rigorous procedure and is produced only in Puebla.
